    Good shot. Nice compo and pose. Tough to shoot these against the sky i guess. Do you think a +1ve Ec might have worked better???

    Wow! Nice image Mrudul, good to see the couple in one frame. Wish you had got some catch light. The other I missed out on shooting the couple, however I sighted them on several occasion.

    Lovely placement of these kingfishers. I am wondering how the vertical close crop would have looked. That would eliminate voids and get the emphasize on birds and their interesting placement. TFS.

    Good to see two of them together. It is not easy to compose two animals/birds together, as invariably they look in different directions.

    I am not sure if a closer approach would have been possible. Though the boatman had once taken me too close. A vertical with a close approach would have been good.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
    Sabyasachi
